We booked this lovely little cottage for a winter weekend break for me, husband and dog.
Greeted by Hilary the charming owner on arrival and cottage was lovely and cosy and contained everything you could need for a get away from it all break. Pub in Staveley, 1 mile away, was great for tasty food and very welcoming to strangers and their canine companion. Knaresborough , Harrogate and Pateley Bridge all within easy reach by car if in need of a change. Would thoroughly recommend this lovely little hideaway.
My wife and I stayed in Newholme cottage over the New Year period, thank you Hilary for the Christmas decorations a lovely touch!!
On arrival we were met by Hilary but the steps up then down to the cottage came as quite a shock to us as my wife was 5 weeks into a knee replacement, one reason for choosing a bungalow!! However she managed quite well having had a hip replacement 2 years earlier so was able to negotiate the steps fairly easily!!
As has been mentioned by other clients the welcome was very warm and there are many lovely touches!!
We felt it only fair to mention a few niggles we had, the shower was great and I must thank you for the many strategically placed hand rails but we felt a little more shelving for shampoo and shower gel bottles would have been an advantage!!
We found it rather strange how much freezer space there was and not enough room to stand a bottle of wine or champagne in our case for New Year's Eve!!!
Some one mentioned the mattress but we had no qualms about this but found the bed very low, luckily my wife did manage to stand up from the bed but I struggled to stand, I am 6ft tall not that tall in this day and age!!!
Of course we would recommend the cottage because it is in a lovely part of the country with easy access to both town Harrogate and the lovely villages nearby!!!!
We stayed here with our 3 month old whilst spending a couple of days with family who live nearby. The cottage was perfect, it had everything we needed, was immaculate and very cosy for the little one so we couldn't ask for more. Hilary was a lovely host too. We'll definitely be booking again for our next visit North!
Me and husband went for short break for my birthday we had a lovely few days the correct was so clean and hilary was so friendly and the snow made it magical thank you for a lovely few days angela and Paul .
